Healthy Hair Habits – T-shirt Drying

In my last healthy habits post, I talked about how the practice of wrapping up one’s hair at night is like second nature to me.  Today’s practice is like that as well – drying my hair with a t-shirt.

This is not new information – everybody and their mama will say that t-shirt drying is the way to go.  I went from using towels to dry my hair (because that’s how I was doing it my WHOLE life) to microfiber towels (because I was told they are better than regular towels) to t-shirts.  The t-shirt dry is one of the best wash day practices I’ve adopted for my hair.  Hands down.

Day 51 Tshirt dry

I remember the few hairs that would get tangled in the fibers of regular cotton towels.  And honestly, I remember it occasionally happening with microfiber towels as well… not on the same scale, of course, but still.  T-shirts, though?  Not a single strand caught.  Like ever.  And I definitely don’t feel that my hair is parched after t-shirt drying like I do with towels.  It seems to be JUST the right amount of damp to apply leave-in.   How does it do that?   #tshirtsaremagic

I will NOT use a towel to dry my hair ever again.  For realsies.  I TRAVEL with my drying t-shirts* if necessary because that’s how for real I am about it.

So yeah.  I’m not one of those curlies that claims to be disciplined in all things healthy hair.  I definitely have some bad practices that I am not proud about.  But t-shirt drying is one of those things that I’m a card-carrying fanatic about.  Like… I can’t remember the last time I was in a salon.  And I can’t say I have any plan to go to one any time soon, but if they tried to dry my hair with a towel… pssssh.  I don’t know what would happen.  (Watch me take my drying t-shirts to a salon though.)


*my favorite one (pictured above) is an old, long-sleeved, Ecko t-shirt.  lol.  Hey, 2001.
